LOPEZ MORALES, José Luis  and  GARCES DE LOS FAYOS RUIZ, Enrique Javier. Edorexia and Sport: A Conception of the Obesity and Craving Food. CPD [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.1, pp.139-142. ISSN 1989-5879.

This study aims to analyze how low-calorie diets and sports operate on the treatment of obesity, as well as its components such as craving food. Sport is one of the most common resources used in order to treat diseases such as obesity. Nevertheless, recent advances in Psychology conclude the existence of an impulse control disorder related to appetite behind obesity. This study deduces that low-calorie diets and sports have secondary effects and do not address the underlying problem of obesity. In addition, athletes - among other collectivities - can use these resources to avoid the manifestation of obesity and so its components such as food addiction, reinforcing risk behaviors and thoughts and worsening the problem.

Keywords : edorexia; obesity; sport; diet; treat; craving food.
